Sonnets was an experiment in dislocated performance, in performance that must be completed by the spectator/participant in a specific set of physical and mediatized circumstances. The Sonnet shown above, for example, is distributed as the following set of instructions:

Go to a public bathroom. Look in the mirror. Continue to look. Call (###) ###-####.

Calling the (now inactive) phone number leads the listener to a voicemail recording of Shakespeare Sonnet 138.
